Long square nails are considered one of the most dramatic and glam styles of nails because of their full width, strength, and durability. The trendy square shape provides definition to the nail, making it noticeable. However, ladies who are considering giving long square nails a go should remember that the design isn’t always practical.
Their length can make every day tasks a little difficult if you aren’t used to them, so it’s recommended you try temporary long nails to make sure you can handle them before going for longer-lasting ones. Once you’re used to them, you’ll want to try every design we’ve listed below!
